Thanks a lot, your description was excellent, I've implemented it and it
works.
As a followup, you say that the memcpy won't hurt performance much but
I'm not
so sure of that... in your experience, is it better to use a 2D array
for the
PV or linked lists?  With the prior you have the issue of memcpys
whereas with
the latter you have the overhead of a memcpy per ply but can then link
the
ply-1 list to the ply list very easily.  Of course then you have to deal
with
free calls...

Thanks again for the help.
